Reserve Materials, Textbooks and iPads

Reserve Materials

Reserve Materials are put on hold in the library by professors. They are housed on the main floor in the Access /Circulation Desk area. There are two types of reserve materials: electronic reserves (e-reserves) and print reserves (books and periodical articles).

Electronic Reserves

E-Reserves are accessed via our catalog. Search by course number, title, or  by instructor last name, first name.

  • You will be prompted for your first and last name and your Banner ID# to use E-Reserves.
  • E-Reserves are listed as "View or Print" followed by the title of the article.
  • E-Reserve articles are PDF files.

 Print Reserves
